Love Breathing ( (こい) () (きゅう) Koi no kokyū?) is a Breathing Style derived from Flame Breathing.


Love Breathing is a Breathing Style that is based of the emotion of love. Most, if not all, known techniques form a combination of mid to long-ranged whip-like attacks that utilize the user's own flexibility, dexterity, agility and speed.

This Breathing Style is the personal creation of Mitsuri Kanroji, made by altering the Flame Breathing she learned from Kyojuro Rengoku to suit her needs. It takes advantage of her body's unique muscle density, which grants her inhuman strength without making her physically bulky, to deliver fast and powerful blows while moving with incredible flexibility and agility. As it relies on her body's special composition, it is a Style only she can use. It can also be assumed that this Breathing Style requires a whip-like katana.
